God’s Goodness

God is good

I often have a skewed idea of what God’s goodness is. I easily equate it with happiness and getting what I want. However, God’s goodness is far bigger than me being happy. God’s goodness is His love, mercy, patience, justice, sacrifice, and much more.

I think there is far more comfort in the actual goodness of God than what I pretend there it. God reveals His goodness to His people many times through scripture. In Exodus He allows his goodness to pass before his people. In 2 Chronicles His people rejoice in his goodness. In Psalm we find we can be comforted to know we will rest in his goodness.

Our season of life or emotional state does not affect the goodness of God. We can know our God is faithful and just and loving because we know He is good.
